9:01 am
the friend says they are out of work. what do you do then? advice on how to help the friend through it. and the ywca is here. >> we're talking about the shower of hope. some people dropping stuff off the other day for this. as well as i got an e-mail, someone wanting to help out. it's exciting to get feedback. we'll tell you more about how you can help out the community. and the junior league of baltimore. we'll visit the wise penny thrift store. it's been around forever. we'll have them to tell us about the good things they do. i want to show you the greatest paper in the history of the world. i want to take you to the crime blotter, police blotter. this happened the other day, ready? a caller in the 300 block of south main street reported saturday a man had been in the restroom for an extended period of time. there you go. >> it just means it's a nice community. that's all. >> if that's a crime, man, i'm serving life. wow. tell you right now.
9:02 am
i didn't know. look at me with the newspaper! here's justin. >> tblt -- guilty as charged. confessing after all these years. by the way, 9:00 a.m., are we down to nine days? >> yes. >> miss pringle holding up very well. right now let's go outside. maryland's most powerful doppler radar, first sweep came through. harford county, this is jarrettsville over through bel air. notice that we've got a few spotty showers and some of these are just popping up at will. it may look like it's just threatening out there. occasionally it will dump light to moderate rain. the showers will grow heavier as the day wears on as we get solar heating and a little boost on the thermometer. overall just spotty light showers now, maybe a heavier one near pretty boy in northern baltimore county. overall, what we're expecting today, a day that will be humid, temperatures will be held back a little bit to 82. the risk of some storms, could
9:03 am
turn severe, means large hail, damaging wind. look out for frequent lightning and some downpours could flood out local streets. this is possible later today. more on the forecast coming up. 9:02. back to you. >> every morning we start with the top stories. we start with a new indictment in connection to a peddling probe of city hall. city councilwoman helen holton once again has been indicted, so has developer and bakery entrepreneur john paterakis. he owns h & s bakery and is the developer of harbor east. the state's prosecutor says he gave city councilwoman helen holton $6,000 to help pay for a political poll. this is a violation of campaign finance laws. earlier this year she was indicted on bribery and perjury charges. a judge dismissed the charges in may. as for john paterakis a close friend told abc2 news he cannot believe the state prosecutor chose to target him. >> it's a sad day.
9:04 am
but i'm quite confident that mr. paterakis will be exonerated of any wrongdoing. >> helen holton's attorney released a statement saying that "in part miss holton is innocent, there was no conspiracy and she's confident the meet will same fate as the earlier one." a spokesperson for mayor sheila dixon's office who still faces charges in connection to another case said the mayor would not be commenting on this. have you seen more police in east baltimore? yes. that's the answer, after a shootout over the weekend. we've seen dozens of police officers in the streets in the same area where a series of shootings left 15 people wounded. residents say it's nice for now but worry violence will come right back once police believe. >> it's fine while they are here. nothing is going to happen once they are here. once they are gone, you know, somebody else is going to do something stupid. and it's inevitable.
9:05 am
>> the police department pledged to keep extra patrols in the neighborhood until they can make arrests in this weekend's rash of shootings. a private memorial service is being planned for tomorrow for the four people killed in the helicopter crash on 70 last friday. they were returning from a business meeting in hagerstown when the robinson r44 went down on eastbound lanes of a highway. the cause of the crash is still under investigation. the issue of separation of church and state is sparking debate in howard county this morning. the glen mar united methodist church in ellicott city is asking the county to approve a tax-free loan for an expansion project they want to do. church members say it would allow for more community outreach. those opposed say it's not the county's responsibility. and it crosses the line. >> i think that the county should not be in the business of church expansions, period. >> we did not build a sanctuary so it's not like we have this holy place that, you know, is only dedicated to worship.
9:06 am
>> the project costs about $10 million but with the help of the county the church would save $1.5 million. the county council is expected to take up this issue very soon. however, they won't be voting on it until early september. by night it's a slow-moving megaload. by day, a modern marvel. a 250-ton transformer inching its way from havre de grace to a nuclear power plant in delta, pennsylvania. abc2 news jeff hager caught up with it along its path. >> reporter: the excitement is building here along main street in delta, pennsylvania as residents hope to capture a glimpse of one of the largest special deliveries in decades. >> i heard about it from the maryland side, not from the pennsylvania side. i heard it from maryland. that it was coming here. >> reporter: what is coming, a 250-ton generator bound for the peach bottom nuclear plant that will carry enough power from a nuclear reactor to the
9:07 am
power grid to light up an entire state. >> the transfer was manufactured by hyundai in coria. from there shipped to philadelphia. from philadelphia barged to havre de grace. >> reporter: now it's making the last and most difficult leg of the 7,000-mile trip covering 30 miles of rural roads through northern maryland. at 16 feet wide, 27 feet high and a whopping 144 feet long with the two tractors it takes to move it the state is shutting down portions of routes 155, 22, 136 and 165 this week as the very oversized load begins moving each night before midnight and halts its movement by 5:00 in the morning. there's nothing simple about moving something this big. in fact, movers say they can't travel more than three to five miles per hour, about the speed i'm walking now. but each stop along the way draws curious onlookers who show up just to see the mammoth machinery for themselves.
9:08 am
>> we watched the movers a lot. to see how it's transported, you know? >> what did you expect when you came out here? >> i didn't expect it to be that big. >> reporter: in harford county, jeff hager, abc2 news. no doubt bit, life is tough after you've been laid off even if you're not getting the pink slip. >> next, how to help a loved one cope with an all too familiar snare joe. a thrift store gets help. how a local group is helping that story give communities a chance to get back on their feet. also ahead this morning, the countdown is on thanks to justin and jamie. nine days. we want you to help out the community. we'll tell you about the shower of hope and how you can make a difference. stay with us. coming up.
9:09 am
9:10 am
9:11 am
you nervous? nine days away? >> yeah. >> remember this day as a cloudy one with storms in the forecast this afternoon. justin berk will be right back. it's 76 degrees. you nervous? >> no, i'm not nervous. i'm excited. only nine days left to my wedding. i don't know what i would do if it were not for you two giving me the countdown. one thing that made me uncomfortable is the question, where are you registered? my fiancee and i have everything we need. in honor of our pending
9:12 am
nuptials we're asking you to help out baltimore's women in need. we started this thing with abc2, ywca, united way called the shower of hope. we registered at target stores to help something called my place project. this helps disabled homeless women get permanent housing. you can donate things that you have in your home, things that you take for granted, we're talking sheets, towels, lamps, cleaning products, you name it, they need it all. already we started to get stuff at the station that you're looking at now. so keep it come because we need to help out these women. the ywca is a partner in the shower of hope we were just discussing along with the united way and abc2. to tell us more about it, casey hardin with the ywca, vice president of operations. thank you for coming. >> thank you. >> a lot of people, jamie earlier was singing "ymca." explain what the ywca is and what you do. >> we've been around for 125
9:13 am
years. over the years through social service programs and social service agenda we've met the needs of the community. currently, we provide housing programs for women and children, leadership programs for women of all ages as well as safe affordable child care for families. >> a broad spectrum of things you do for women. >> absolutely. >> where does my place fit in? >> it's a project that came about, united way, women's leer leadership council approached the ywca and we wanted to work together to find a way that we could do something in the community. we have our arbutus project, project for chronically homeless women that is opening up in baltimore county. it was a really good fit to have women in the community and people in the community pull together fixtures and household items to give to women that have been formally chronically homeless that are now in our program working towards
9:14 am
stability in their lives. >> what does that mean, chronically homeless if how have they gotten in this situation and why is it so hard to get back on your feet from here? >> typically chronically homeless women have a severe mental illness or long standing drug use issues. they may have experienced severe trauma in their lives. they typically have little to no income and may not even have identification. they come into the program after having gone into and out of emergency shelters, hospitals and localities and come to a program where they have efficiency apartments, privacy and independence that allows them, along with our intensive case management to get a handle on the obstacles that are preventing them from having stability. qqhow hard is it for these women to get back on their feet when they've been in these situations? you're talking homes and situation was nothing. >> absolutely.
9:15 am
it's a difficult process, absolutely. the model that will be at arbutus and the support that will come from the ywca and initiatives like the one that we're talking about give them all the support services that are appropriate to their circumstances. so that they can take the next step. >> it must mean the world to them to have the opportunity to say i'm going to have a roof over my head. after being in this situation where i'm permanently homeless, all of a sudden i'm going to have a home. >> absolutely. the model is very intentional in that they have an efficiency apartment they can call their own. once they have those creature comforts around them then we can work with them to overcome the other issues that i've spoke about earlier. >> thank you so much for coming in. it's everything that they need. we're talking cleaning products, mops, sheets, whatever you think when you're starting over. we registered at target and it's under pringle and carlin but trust me, it benefits the my place project. we want you to help them.
9:16 am
go to the target, you can do it on line, go to a store. if you don't want to ship it somewhere you can drop it off. there are dropoff locations and they are on our web site but they are right there on the screen now. you can drop it here at the studios, united way of central maryland which is baltimore city. or carroll and harford counties united way community partnership. thank you so much for coming in. >> and thank you, rob and wmar. >> we're happy to do it. now to other ways people are helping others. the wise penny thrift store has been around since 1970 but last night the store had a grand re-opening, better than ever. the junior league of baltimore spruced up a few things with proceeds from the store helping the community. sherrie johnson gives us a tour of the newly renovated facility. >> reporter: the sign above the door at the wise penny thrift store says "there is no place like home." after three years of renovation a new and improved store has opened to the public in north baltimore. this brightly lit store and wide open space, this new look is sure to please.
9:17 am
>> we're hoping to improve the utilities that were running through it. offer an open and bright space for customers and generate new traffic. >> reporter: the original store opened in 1970. it sells everything from gently used clothes to housewares, shoes and toys for kids. all the proceeds support agencies of the junior league of baltimore. >> our customers know that when they check out the money they've spent that day not only benefits their wallet but also benefit a community nonprofit organization. all of those dollars, 100% fund our operating budget that allows us to do programming in baltimore for at risk communities. >> reporter: the new store is already paying off. within the first week of the opening in june sales nearly doubled. and why not? with such top notch items to choose from. >> i think with people being more conscious on recycling and ecofriendlyet helps the shop and thrift stores. thrift stores have grown 5% in the last three years as
9:18 am
people realize getting bargains and recycling clothing is great for the environment. >> reporter: while customers can shop until their hearts desire junior league members can take business on the second floor with renovated office space. anything to keep this nonprofit on the right track to help the citizens of baltimore. sherrie johnson, abc2 news. >> several architects and graphic design artists donated their time to help renovate the store. what did you think? nice. what are you hearing from the people that come in now? >> they are so excited. we've seen a more than double of our sales just in the few weeks we've been open. >> what are you hearing and why they are shopping there now? >> some don't realize it's the same store. they are asking for the wise penny and are so happy. some sales associates burst intoaries when they -- aries when they saw the new buildings. >> tell me about the intrernship program you have. >> we're proud of this program. it evolved out of our women's
9:19 am
mentoring program that was held offsite. now that we've invested in our building we're able to bring more of our community programs on site including the internship program. it provides real job training to women who are on their path to self-selvesy. they are getting retail coaching and on the job coaching, logging in 10 hours a week. then getting one-on-one mentoring with the junior league volunteer to help get their resume in order, practice job interviewing, dress for success and get a reference. so when they get out there -- >> what does it feel when they land that job? >> it's wonderful. i think with the unemployment rate so high it's a much added benefit for them. a couple of them have gone into a training program. the other one just got her green card last summer. we support them the whole way through. we follow up with them. >> we talked about the building. it looks great. we're talking about you. how did you get involved with
9:20 am
the junior league in the first place? what makes someone watching right now get involved and do volunteering? what made you start? >> there are many reasons that women come to the junior league. one is friendship. one is professional networking. one is building your professional leadership skills. and then also having to do good for the community. for me it was a mix of everything. i joined with three of my best girlfriends. we decided that we were not going to be on the same committee so we could spread out, make new friends, we ended up doing a lot of our work together. for me, i actually transitioned by leadership that i learned in the junior league into a staff position as their director. first-ever director. >> how with you? you been around 10 years? >> nine years. i'm the president now. i want to be exposed to things that maybe my personal life and professional life wouldn't have exposed me to. marketing, public speaking. as a cpa i would not have
9:21 am
been exposed to it. >> not only the store but you do things throughout the whole year. off the top of your head, i know you have a calendar of events going on. anything to shout out now about what the junior league, big events coming up? >> we have community events. we have fundraising events associated with the store. community events, we have a health fair coming up november 7th. it will be our first onsite community program in our building with our brand new expanded multipurpose room on the second floor. then the special sales, boutique warehouse sale coming up in the fall which also provides boutique owners the opportunity to move some of their indices and clearance merchandise. they sell it with us under one roof and we split the profits. a lot of them let us keep the unsold merchandise to put into the wise penny. >> the wise penny is open, days and hours? >> tuesday through sunday, mondays our only day off. it's a late-day tuesdays until 6:00. otherwise 10:00 to 4:00. >> thank you so much for your

9:25 am
76 degrees and yes, the -- i believe that's the love boat we're looking at. >> aw. >> i didn't know they had a port in baltimore. 88% humidity. winds out of the south at 29.85. barometer rising but that's actually a low level and that's one of the reasons we're in this atmosphere that is just prime to produce more showers and storms. right now we're looking at some showers on the north side of the beltway. we have that basically from towson, timonium, through hunt valley. looks like heavier rain just north of reisterstown, and to the north side of finksburg. some of the showers look like they are just sitting in the same spot. at least this particular one has been there for about a half-hour and sorting to get a little heavier as we're geam watching the evolution of some of the storms today that will feed off of a little bit of heat and atmosphere that is prime to produce more showers and storms. most of the heavy rain locked up in the mountains and to the north right now. that will slowly negligence our direction.
9:26 am
what we have here is bisquely a southerly wind but around the bay the winds southeast. whenever we have a southeast wind off the chesapeake that puts baltimore and all the bay area's prime spot for develop the possibility of some severe weather. we have that slight risk of severe storms as we head through today. pull it back wider and the main piece of energy in the atmosphere is here and the storms extend all the way to the deep south. it will be a rough ride on the eastern third of the nation and as far as our forecast model indicates more showers and storms firing up after lunch hour taking us in through this afternoon, 5:00 p.m. and on in through this evening. and tonight. so there will be some passing heavy rain-producing storms that do have the potential of turning severe with damaging wind, hail, even as isolated tornado. high of only 82 degrees. tonight we slip back to 71. with some leftover showers and fog. tomorrow we break out a little more sun. getting up to 89. but that will increase the chance of showers and storms mainly in the afternoon, unfortunately the pattern continues and it's just a matter of watching the radar at this stage of the game throughout the rest of the

9:30 am
it's get back to work wednesday. what do you do when your friend calls to say they are out of work? what do you say back? well, with help, to help our friends, our friend, life coach and ceo of the big life network, renissa bowly is here. you get that phone call. you feel like you want to work along with them to find a job. in the next five minutes before you hang up. how do you get them through it? how do we get through it? >> a couple of key steps to
9:31 am
keep in mind. first of all, give people space. this is an embarrassing and challenging time for folks. you want to give them a couple of days to get their bearings, process what has happened, figure out their game plan. if you have not heard from folks in a couple of days, take the initiativened reach out of when you do that, don't avoid the obvious. be honest, saying things like i'm sorry to hear you've been laid off, showing sincere compassion and you're getting it out there on the table. >> should you say, oh -- take this tone, i'm very sorry. or say, hey, look, it's this day and age. don't be -- you'll pick yourself -- what kind of tone to use? >> you want to be matter of fact. at the end of the day you want people to maintain dignity. losing a job is not the end of the world, it's not a character defect or anything like that. you want to be matter of fact. however you would communicate with your friend. >> is it your job to coach them through this? >> here's one thing you can do. you can try and help in useful ways. offering to take a look at
9:32 am
their cover letter and resume, if you're skilled at that would be helpful. contacting and connecting them with folks who would be useful contacts for them. so if you know somebody they can network with, offer to help. offering to be a reference on an interview, that would be hugely helpful as well. so practical ways. ask your friend how can i help you? sometimes they want that level of assistance. sometimes they don't. >> the other friends, when they get the phone call, they steer clear, well, good luck, let me know and don't call them back. >> it's awkward for folks. a couple things to keep in mind, sometimes people want less advice, but want sometimes vent or just so someone to talk to or shoulder to cry on. if you're friend is that kind of person be that for that person, be sympathetic, a great listener but don't indulge if they start to bad mouth the old employer or old boss, it's counterproductive and doesn't help in the short or long term. if you need to be a listener,
9:33 am
definitely do. that i tell people all the time, avoid what i call ego-bruising questions. the questions like, well, have you got an job yet? or, how many interviews have you been on? instead, ask, what can i or somebody i know do to help? are there suggestions i can make? this way your friend can be open about their progress and what they need but can maintain dignity which is important. >> should you write reference letters without them asking you for them? >> again, you can offer to be a reference. if that is what they need. and allow them to open up and say here's how you can be helpful to me. the last thing i tell folks, which is a subtle way to support, you want to keep in touch and you want to keep an eye out. by that i mean some folks who get laid off, they are back in the game, in a week's time, they've got another job. other people, it can be weeks and month before they actually find employment again. so you want to keep in touch weeks and months after the incident. that you've shown your initial sympathy but you still want to -- you hang in
9:34 am
there. the way to do it is pick up the phone and say would love to catch up, can i treat to you lunch? you're taking finances off the table in case it's a tight point for folks but giving them a chance to reconnect. then you're also paying attention. how are they behaving? for some they spiral into depression. this is a time for you to keep in mind. >> you are good. let's recap what you just said. bullet points. a great web site. >> www.thebiglifenetwork.com. any life coaching related questions, finances, the like, we're here to support you. >> thank you so much for coming in. megan. good advice. >> you send out the resumes, make the phone calls, you finally land an interview. you have to make sure that job is yours. that is the hard part. that is why marianne master is here. "leadership tips, 52 weeks to business and personal success."
9:35 am
why is the interview part so hard? >> i think it's a matter of perspective. >> it's my perspective i guess. >> actually, it's an opportunity to connect with somebody, to let them know why you can benefit their organization. so it takes you off the paper and gives you a personality and persona they can remember. >> you gave us things to highlight and think about. preparation was the first one. how important is this? what does it mean? >> preparation is very important. it helps to give you confidence when you go into the interview. in order to prepare it's. to know your brand. what are the strengths you offer? what are your skills, experience? how does it relate to the organization and how will it benefit them? it's good to research the organization. this is really important. nowadays with the internet you can google, you can find out who your interviewer is going to be. and see if you know people through other organizations you can find out something about your interviewer. it's really also important to be able to know if there are
9:36 am
any -- past events happening or current events happening in to the organization so you can speak to them when you're in the interview. qi would imagine nothing would be less impressive than going in and not knowing anything about the company. >> exactly. one last piece of the preparation, to practice. before you go, practice some of the tough questions they might be asking you. such as why do you want to work here? or what can you offer to our organization? you'll be a lot more confident when you're actually in the interview. >> let's go to the interview itself. obviously, you got to look the part. what else? >> it's very important to look the part. it's better to overdress than underdress. also, it's important to give a firm handshake, to look people in the eye, to have that confidence and presence. it's also important to be able to talk about your brand, what are the skills you have? what do you bring to their organization? and how is it going to benefit them? it's important to be enthusiastic, because that shows that you're interested and that you want to work
9:37 am
there. and it's also important to ask them some questions. if you can have some questions that are -- you've come up with in advance, that's really helpful because it shows, again, you're interested, that you're curious, you've done your homework. you can leave in some of that research that you've done, into the interview as you're talking with them. that lets you know you've put some time into it. >> lastly, we have the follow-up. >> yeah. follow-up. the last impression and first impressions you leave with people are important. so, what you want to -- you want to write a thank you note. hand written preferrable. some like a e-mail thank you because interviewers can forward it along. you can also follow up if you have not heard anything. you can follow up by phone or e-mail. and then also if you know some people who might know the interviewer and you feel it's appropriate you might ask them to put in a good word for you as well. so those are the three steps, the preparation, interviewing
9:38 am
and follow-up really will lead to successful interview. >> if people want to reach you and get more on this because there's a lot of information that goes into it, more than the three minutes, where can they find you? >> www.synergy/consultants. net. >> the book? >> amazon, my web site or greetings and readings. >> thank you. jamie? today we've been talking about giving back. a local group of students leading by example. coming up, how they are fighting their own battles to help soldiers overseas fight theirs. eating more healthy, as easy as knowing your produce. crystal register from wegmans with a lesson on better eating habits. when we come back. i want to make a correction here. this is the love boat. the call from the inner harbor. they are waiting for you. >> it looks a little small.
9:39 am
>> anchors aweigh! don't you love the rough seas ahead? we have a little bumpy ride. the chance of strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon. stick around. that forecast coming up. and this is your movies on demand screen. oh cool. (cable guy) so what are you going to do next? who are you? who is he? it's okay. well, i'm going to... activate over 100 hd channels? program his remote? it's like you've been watching him all day. have you been watching me all day? no.
